Hi All,

Here's a couple of pictures of my GT. I have been using it a bit over the summer where I live near Zug, Switzerland. I bought it a couple of years ago from a guy who had it in a barn in Bavaria and it hadn't been used since 1999. I had to properly clean the fuel system which wasn't as cheap or easy as I thought it would be but other than that and an occasional annoying hot non-start issue:( it's totally fine.

It has had the usual dings and dents - all pre 1999 but mostly original interior, paint and trim. I'm now in the process of ramping up the revs and do like the old school turbo kick-in, though I've got to be careful as the A road limit is 50 mph and there's a lot of mobile cameras...

Cheers,

Jeff

Inherent and well known issue with unedited images on this forum. If you do a quick 'edit' on your phone or computer, it does help keep them the right way up. Just a click of the 'magic wand/enhancement' button will help

I'm an absolute sucker for a lovely CGT or GTS. So love the photos, even upside down. Theres a few GT owners on here to support you, though they are very rare. Please keep the photos and chat coming
